Re: naproxen sodium (Aleve)



My sister-in-law had an episode just yesterday when she took aleve for her first time and doctor ruled everything out but referred to this as "vasovagel" like episode. I didn't know what that was until I started reading this web site. I believe the Aleve was the cause and it was apparent she had an allergic reaction to the medication such as swollen lips and tongue. Her bp dropped significantly and she did pass out. This has been an informative website and I thank all involved. His recommendation was not to take this medication as well as aspirin based pills again. Strictly Tylenol for her now.

This web site is not a substitute for a thorough medical evaluation and diagnosis of your vaso-vagal type symptoms.  Medical treatment and diagnosis is the only acceptable initial response to these serious symptoms since they might present from any number of life threatening and treatable illnesses. It is for you and your physician to rule out more serious illnesses; Please don't use this online forum as an alternative to getting responsible medical attention and being under the care of a physician for the duration of any unknown, suspected or dangerous vaso-vagal syndrome symptoms.
